Kembe X & Alex Wiley, “Don't Quit”

As we noted before in covering Kembe X's "Sawbuck" video, he's a skilled rhyme-writer in his ability to see both the advantages and disadvantages to being a weed head, which is largely overlooked in hip hop. On "Don't Quit" he and Alex Wiley weigh the pros and cons. Most stoners will declare the THC doesn't have an addictive lock on their decision making, but Kembe X lays out the phases of toking: remembering his first hit and the switch in reasoning as eventually you start smoking just for the buzz of it. He's had his small vacations from the spliffs, but he comes right back just to get enjoy the simple things with a heightened sense.
